 Prime quote about why fear is rising1 comment

A society that believes in nothing fear becomes the only agenda. Whilst the 20th century was dominated between a conflict between a free market right and a socialist left. Even though both of those outlooks had their limitations and their problems at least they believed in something.

Whereas what we are seeing now is a society that believes in nothing.

And a society that believes in nothing is particular frightened by people who believe in anything.

And therefore we label those people as fundamentalists or fanatics and they have much greater purchase in terms of the fear that they instill in society than they truly deserve.

That is a measure of how much we have become isolated and atomised rather than of their inherent strength.
